Because I run out of my face wash, so I looked for a new one. I was searching for so many product that has no perfume or things like that in it which can dry out my skin and leave me tight feeling on my face just like my old facial wash did.

After searching and browsing I decided to try face wash from The Body Shop Aloe Calming Foaming Wash. In the packaging, this face wash is fragrance-free, colorant-free, preservative-free and alcohol-free.

My skin type was so oily and because of that I tried lots of product to decrease the oil on my skin and now it becomes so dry even flaky and wrinkly in some areas like between my eyebrows. This is why I need a gentle face wash that will not scrape off my skin natural oil and makes my skin even drier.

The product is in liquid form but when I pump it out it will transform into the foam. Honestly, this is my first time using foaming face wash like this one. I was confused in the beginning because how can it clean my face with this foam. I tried once and failed because I spread into my palm first like regular face wash and when I put onto my face the lather just gone. I was like “whaat?!”. I tried again the second time and I put onto my face directly after I pump without spreading on my palm and it works that way. I was laughing because I was so scared this thing is not worth it.

My problem with face wash is some of them are drying my face afterward, makes my skin feel so tight like anything and also I really easy to get breakout from face wash even it just a facial wash and will not stay for long time on my skin but I could get breakout and when I got breakout it will take months to get better.

The Body Shop Aloe Calming Foaming Wash is not making my skin as tight as before but I still feel some dryness after I washed my face. I think if I use moisturizer this dry-feeling will not be a big issue. 


  • Alcohol-free
  • The foam makes it last long in one pump
  • Affordable (I got it for around $9)
The Body Shop Aloe Foaming Wash


  • I still can feel dryness on my face
  • I can’t get the travel size because I travel a lot and transferring product to new bottle just not my passion

I think for the next I want to try another face wash from the body shop like the tree tea oil one or maybe will try cetaphil cleanser but for now, I will use this face wash and see the difference on my skin.

So how about you gangs? Do you have the same skin problem as I have?
